PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) has hit one billion downloads worldwide since 2018, making it one of the most successful smartphone games.

The latest download figures defeated other popular games like Kiloo, Subway Surfers and Candy Crush Saga.

Unlike PUBG mobile, the other games were not as sophisticated and have vast appeal for audiences.


PUBG Mobile publisher Tencent is currently one of the biggest game companies by revenue. The company said that it aims to gain half of its video game revenue from outside its home market of China.

Several of its game studios like LightSpeed, Quantum and Timi have already started working in the United States (US) to create original content for the global audience.

Last year, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had temporarily banned the game by stating that it is harmful to user’s health after some segments of society had claimed the same.

Later on, after getting assurance from the company for a comprehensive control mechanism, PTA had unbanned the game.
